Knowing the opponent- History lesson about the Horsham DFNL

The Horsham and District Football league was created in 1946.

In 1982 the league expanded after the West Wimmera Football League disbanded and five clubs joined: Goroke, Noradjuha, Douglas-Harrow-Miga Lake, Gerang - Kiata, and Netherby-Lorquon. This brought the total to sixteen clubs. Since then Netherby-Lorquon has gone into recess, and Imperials-Wonwondah has moved to the Wimmera Football League in 1983.

In 2000, after the folding of the Ararat District Football Association, Stawell Swifts and Great Western joined the competition.

Edenhope-Apsley joined from the Kowree Naracoorte Tatiara Football League in 2007. Natimuk and Horsham Diggers (Wimmera Football League) voted on a merger for 2014 season and beyond under the banner of Natimuk United Football Netball Club. The club wore the Natimuk jumper for home games and Horsham Diggers jumper for away games.

The Swifts were premiers in 2014 after defeating the previously undefeated Laharum in the grand final
